2/1/2023 - The Male Room #171 Nature - Let's Celebrate You

Hi Everyone! Welcome back to another monthly challenge here at The Male Room and this month we are making Nature card. I have a wonderful DSP that just have trees/nature as a background so I decided to start with that. Then I added a tree shiloutte from the dies and added some blue birds, sentiments and a ribbon to add some interests. This card is so quick and easy to put together and it will be a great one to duplicate so you have some on hands. I hope you enjoyed the creation I am sharing today and be sure to join us at the challenge.

1/30/23 - Make My Monday #193 Love is in the Air - I love that we are friends

Welcome back to another bi-weekly here at Make My Monday and this week we are making Love card! This card is made using the new 2023 Stampin’ Up Mini Catalog goodies and this is also the swap card I made for the our Fun n’ Crafty Group! This is a dutch door card and I saw a video from Jessica Taylor and made it into a friendship love card. You basically cut a panel off from a horizonoal card and use that piece as a flap for the fold. I finished the card with a cute sentiment and added some gold sequins. Hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today and be sure to join us at the challenge. This card is also submitted at Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration #406. 

 
Cardbase – 5 ½” x 8 ½” score at 4 ¼” and cut the front panel at 2¾”

1/29/2023 - Just Add Ink #637 & TGIF #405 - Thanks

Happy Sunday! Today’s card is using 2 challenges – Just Add Ink for sketch & TGIF – No stamping and this is what I came up with. I used a piece of 4 x 5 ¼” DSP and cut it diagonally from both end and flip it over to create this beautiful background pattern (another great way to showcase your Designer Series Paper!) and then I added a die cut sentiment Thanks for the focal point in the middle. To finish the card I added some rhinestone. Thank you for stopping by!

Hi everyone – welcome back to another monthly challenge here at Christmas Craft Creation – January 2023 reminder post and this month theme is Snippets (scraps, upcycle…etc).

Hi crafters – welcome back to another bi-weekly challenge here at Cardz 4 Guyz and the challenge for this time is Pets and this is what I came up with. I do have lots of animals stamp set but sadly none of them are considered *Pets* so I have to be creative and use my Fox Builder punch to create a mouse! (although my son said he looks like a cat, haha) I made it into a cute kid’s card and added a fun sentiment of You’re Growing Up for birthday! I hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today and be sure to join us at the challenge!

1/23/2023 - Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #509 - Hello

Welcome back to another weekly chanllenge here at Atlantic Hearts Sketch and this is what I came up with. As you can see, I switched a sketch a little, ended up having the leafs on the left instead of right, kind of different eh?! This is what’s awesome of the sketch challenge, it’s a starting point for your creation and see where you end up with! I used Forever Fern with different coordinating colors and cut it out with the dies. The wreath in the middle is using 2 different sizes of the circle dies to create the border. To finish the card I added a ribbon. I hope you enjoyed the card I am sharing today and can’t wait to see what you came up with!
